The End -- Fireworks or Fizzle?
Seems as though there are a lot of business closings going around lately. Everywhere I look small businesses -- one on top of another -- are closing their doors.
On small marquee signs, empty storefronts, and in the newspaper it's common to see the message, "ABC Company Closes It's Doors After 35 Years."
Is that what you want the newspaper to print about your business?
Somewhat deflating, isn't it? Like a balloon leaking air. So where will your business be in 35 years? Have you decided what "the end" looks like for your small business yet?
Decide -- now -- whether your business will end with an explosive headline such as, "QTD Company sold to YXZ Company for 10 Billion Dollars!" or fizzle out like ABC Company and fade quietly into the sunset.
Define your small business "end" now and work toward it. Dream big. Create a visual that shows exactly what you want your business to look like when you're done.
Define the steps necessary to make that visual you created a reality. Turn it into your plan for success by identifying how and when you will make each step happen. Take those steps and create a road map to follow so you can get there.
